Oval Room Blue

No.85

A darkened historic blue

Oval Room Blue is the most blackened of our blues, giving it a subtly aged feel. Named after the attractively shaped rooms of the late 18th century, it sits perfectly with our popular greys to create depth and balance in either a hall or a darker, cosier family room. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Ammonite

Oval Room Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 247.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely warm blue This colour has warmed up our north facing living room which has two windows one of which is on the east facing wall and the other larger one faces north. I have used f and b for years without any problem including darker colours like London clay and this is the first time I have had to use 3 coats.
